As I said, LR, welcome to our community!!!
I'm so very sorry that you have been dealing with this for so long!! I have healed from a 40+yr set of tick-borne infections only to get reinfected again this year! Ugh!! But healing is very possible for all of us!
I would encourage you to start including a high amount of healthy fats to your diet - avocados, nuts, nut butters, dried fruit, and others. Drink smoothies, eat yogurt with bananas (yum!) and to be sure to eat very healthy.
If you haven't yet, please do spend some time reading through our "New to Lyme? Start here!" thread as it is packed full of really wonderful information that you will find quite helpful. Things like symptom lists (as Lyme rarely travels by itself), detoxing suggestions (very important in our healing!!), and even probiotic information!
Are you seeing a LLMD? Do you wish to? We can help you find one, or you can choose to treat with alternative medicines.
Ammox needs to be combined with probenecid to keep it in the blood stream longer in order to be effective against Lyme disease. You can find out more in Dr. Burrascano's paper, "Advanced Topics in Lyme Disease". There is a link to this in the "New to Lyme?" thread that I mentioned above.
As we learn more of what you are doing and what you are dealing with, there will be many more suggestions that will come in for things that you can consider using to help heal yourself and get through this.
For sleep, are you taking magnesium, melatonin or anything else? I also like to have in my nighttime routine a nighttime tea - I have used Celestial Seasoning's Sleepytime and Bigelow's Sweet Dreams tea. It's mainly the routine that means the most, but a very dark room for sleeping, and either very quiet, or some background noise that you find comforting/soothing, not too warm and not too cool.
Be sure to let us know how we can best help you!!! You are far from alone now!
